Beach Towns

Be sure to plan ahead before visiting this fall, as many operators are running at reduced capacity or are closed for the season due to COVID-19. When in BruceGreySimcoe, follow social distancing protocols, wear a mask and wash your hands frequently.

BruceGreySimcoe’s beach towns are quieter during the fall months, so you can experience a totally different kind of beach visit! 

Wasaga Beach

The bustling Town of Wasaga Beach is home to 14 kilometres of beautiful white sandy shoreline at the southern end of Georgian Bay. And, as trivia buffs know, it’s the world’s longest freshwater beach.  This high-energy summer resort town winds down activity-wise during the fall, but is still super big on beauty.  Divided into sections, each beach has its own parking, washrooms and concessions.  Beach Area 1 is just steps from the town itself, with retail shops, restaurants, cafes, entertainment, hotels, attractions and special events. (Many close down after Labour Day or are closed due to COVID-19 so check ahead to see what's open).  Beaches 2 to 6 offer a quieter retreat as they are adjacent to residences and the Wasaga Beach Provincial Park. Fall is a great time of year to walk along the beach boardwalk and hike and bike the trails.

Sauble Beach

Trivia buffs probably already know this, too – the second-longest freshwater beach in the world, Sauble Beach, is here in BruceGreySimcoe.  With 11 kilometres of pristine, golden sand and shallow waters on the eastern shore of Lake Huron, this shoreline is home to some pretty spectacular sunsets.  Dusk is the perfect time for an evening stroll or dip to catch the vibrant rays. The community’s iconic arch marks the water’s edge of the funky strip, filled with great shopping, dining and activities.  As in Wasaga Beach, many businesses close up shop for the season after Labour Day and some have altered hours of operation due to COVID-19, so it's a good idea to check ahead for business hours.
